Charlie was the perfect gentleman, although in true Charlie fashion he got bored after about 5 minutes and started nibbling on anything he could get his lips on: my arm, the leadrope, the farrier's hair...Anyway, the farrier took one look at his feet and said that Charlie had the best feet he'd seen in a long time: "if only more horses had feet like these..." (cue proud mom moment!)...let's hope New England weather doesn't screw him over :(
I hemmed and hawed about whether to go for snow pads but, in the end, I opted for the winter shoe set. I figured if I didn't get them we'd have a blizzard tomorrow...and if I did we'd be warm til spring...Murphy's law...Luckily he is fine to go barefoot in back so that did save me some money.
|45 minutes and $140 later we had nicely trimmed and winterized tootsies :)|
